Hiking activities in Cordillera Real & The Yungas
For pretty views head uphill toward Hotel Esmeralda and on up to El Calvario, an easy 20-minute hike. At El Calvario the Stations of the Cross lead to a grassy knoll and chapel. There are two good trailheads from El Calvario. The one to the left leads to the cascadas, a trio of waterfalls 5km and two hours beyond the chapel. The trail to the right leads to Cerro Uchumachi, which affords terrific valley views.
